Year 5 have been learning about tenths and hundredths in mathematics this morning. We came up with a game to try and connect 3 decimal numbers to win! There were come very competitive games in the class. Some children didn’t want to go out for their break in order to finish the games.
For the past few weeks, we have been improving our mental recall of the times tables in Year 5, using TT rockstars to make it fun! We are particularly enjoying the Christmas playlist at the moment. Can the children achieve Rockstar status?
The children were set a challenge to develop a variety of skills on Friday.
1. Research a wartime recipe – ICT
2. Buy the ingredients and bring in the utensils. LNF
3. Follow the instructions. Literacy
4. Weigh and measure the ingredients. Numeracy
We then cooked the ingredients. While the food was cooking, pupils washed their dishes and cleared the hall.
Then came the most important part… pupils tasted their creations. (Some tastier than others)
Pupils were independent throughout and were absolutely fantastic! Continue reading
Today the Year 2 children completed their candle experiment. They discovered that the pillar candle would be the best one to send to Santa because it burned the slowest, which would then mean that the elves would have light for longer so that they could make more toys during the power cut. They completed tables using their results and then made bar charts on Hwb showing the difference in the length of each candle before and after burning. They then learnt how to send emails, and enjoyed emailing Santa to let him know about the results of their experiment. Hopefully we will receive a reply soon…
Our Entrepreneurs were working hard at last night’s Winter Fayre, selling their merchandise throughout the night. Between the 4 groups, they raised over £150!
Da iawn pawb!
Llongyfarchiadau to our stars this week
What a great day we all had.
Reception dressed the part and had fun making masks, counting spots and creating fantastic Pudsey pictures.
All for a very good cause!
We were all so busy, they should be tired teddy bears tonight!
Wow, what a wonderful day!
Pontlliw Primary did themselves proud, we pulled out all the stops (and spots).
The morning was full of busy entrepreneurs willing to give their hard earned cash to a worthwhile cause.
The whole school enjoyed purchasing toast and cakes, and even had some stalls with face painting, crayons and candles to buy.
Pontlliw swapped their blue jumpers for PJ’s, spots and Children in Need T-shirts to support other children in Britain.
So far the school have raised a fantastic total of £460 with some small amounts being brought to us next week.
CONGRATULATIONS Pontlliw, you have helped to change some lives.
Look out for our name on the show tonight
Congratulations to our stars this week
On Monday, the Year 3 children enjoyed making some Egyptian themed mummie pizza’s. They began by carefully cutting their muffins in half which they used as their pizza base. After that, the children measured out how much tomato purée they would need and then proceeded to create their mummie pizza using different ingredients. Olives and peppers were used for the eyes and strips of cheese were used to create a bandage effect. Well done boys and girls. I hope your pizza’s tasted as good as they looked 🙂
